Library exhibition focuses on Diminishing Eras

Regina Magee


A NEW exhibition of fine art photography has been launched in Enniskillen library.

The exhibition, by Regina Magee, will run until May 17 and focusses on Margaret Gallagher, who inhabits a small thatched cottage in the heart of the mountain behind Belcoo village.

Regina herself lives in Belcoo, and is a photojournalist.

She explained: “This is a documentary of fine art photography images communicating that life for everyone is not the same.

“It is set in a rural part of Fermanagh and shows life lived by methods that are not traditional of today’s standards.

“These images give a creative, personal and informative reference to a very inspiring lady Margaret Gallagher.”

After the birth of Regina’s second child she along with her husband decided that she would become a stay at home mum. This has allowed her to explore her interest in photography further.

In September 2010 Regina undertook a HND in Photography part time in Lurgan Southern Regional College in Armagh.

This was a 3 year part time course and Regina graduated recently with distinction.

Regina described her on-going mission as to explore the limits of the camera, to constantly strive for new solutions and ultimately to create images that inspire, provoke thought, evoke emotion, and rekindle the natural spirit.
